Happy Friday friends! Today I want to talk about my new favorite piece of furniture in my house! I have been needing a new TV stand for a while now, and looking online I saw all these adorable barn door TV stands! Cheaper made ones would go for $400 or so online, and the really nice, well made ones are priced at upwards of $800. Seems silly to spend that kind of money on something that you can build yourself!
My boyfriend and his parents are so great at building things from scratch. Cambel and I now have five pieces of custom furniture in our house, that has saved us hundreds of dollars if we had purchased identical pieces from the store. Check out the outdoor sectional we made out of FREE palettes – here!
My role in the process is more the vision and overseeing. I kept seeing these barn-door TV stands all over Pinterest and HGTV. I saved photos of my favorites, and took those as inspiration for our TV stand. All in all, it took only a few weeks to complete – working on it only on the weekend!
The colors of our living room are varying shades of gray, blue and brown. I really like the color we chose for the base of the stand, it pulls in the other blues in the room as well as compliments the grays. I also LOVE the stain color for the top because it add’s a more rustic touch (Ace Wood Stain – Dark Walnut).
We purchased the Barn Door hardware from Amazon. They have a ton of options online. You just need to know the measurements and it’s very easy to put together! The hardware comes in a set, so you will have everything you need. Just make sure that the set comes with 4 hangers for the doors, instead of two (unless you only want one door).
Most of the other pieces in the living room are from Target (are we surprised?). The blanket we picked up when we were in Mexico, and the curtains are from HomeGoods. That lovely lamp is from college … don’t worry, it’s being replaced soon.
Follow me and reach out to me with any questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by! xo
